It's been awhile since we've shown you guys anything, so please allow me to thank you for your patience and support, and to entertain you with one of our text-adventure sequences.

Text-adventures are an old, venerable, and sadly all but forgotten element and I have no idea whether or not we did a good job capturing the spirit, so as usual, you're invited to bitch and complain make helpful suggestions. For those who like to quantify things: this particular text adventure is 14,687 words long.  

You start the game in Teron, a small crumbling town controlled by House Daratan. At some point you may (or may not) decide to have a chat with Lord Antidas who, for some reasons, isn't pacing back and forth outside of his palace eagerly awaiting your arrival.

There are several ways to meet him. You can talk to Dellar, Antidas' man in charge of fucking with people and keeping the enemies of the House at bay. He will offer you a traditional "prove yourself first and if you're still alive, which is doubtful, then I'll let you in" way via 2 quests. If that's not how you prefer to roll, there are 3 more quest-related ways to gain entrance (i.e. certain side quests may attract or require Antidas' involvement). If you're still shaking your head and want to do it completely on your own, that's what the text adventure is for.

Without further ado.

Just joking, I'd probably take the disguise route.

Looks great, but it's "entrances lie" not lay.

Secondly--MURDER? Merely because I had planned the duel and provoked the quarrel! Never had I heard anything so preposterous.

We need to do it properly. You have to pick stats (post here) and distribute skill points (we'll tell you how many and what the skill values are; we made some changes so it's different from the demo). First death and you're out. No second chances.

For now the participation is limited to three volunteers (unless they die fast without really getting anywhere).

Sorry, guys, I'm still at work (just came back from a meeting) and Oscar who's actually running this show isn't around.

So, the volunteers are: Nehan, Hiver, and Julius. WorstUsernameEver can watch from his corner learning from his comrades' mistakes and volunteer later.

I need stats and how to distribute skills.

Edit: and which option you want to take (to speed things up).

I would also like to volunteer Approve
